If you want to differentiate yourself from your competitors and add that element of surprise or novelty then time spent in this area of the show is certain to pay dividends.
These were the Newcomers who joined us in 2020 – who knows who you could be meeting in 2021?

The sporting inhabitants of the British countryside, in general tough eggs clad in green, have for many years been refreshing themselves in hot weather and warming themselves in cold with a mixture of sloe gin and champagne. Now, the intelligent folk at Gasm have decided that this stuff is too precious to be confined to the back of Land Rovers and picnic baskets at the races. So they have found the ideal mixture of fizz with powerful spirits and bottled it, to create a new, fun prosecco style drink. Think of it like “Kir royale with a gin kick!”. Versions including plum and raspberry as well as the original sloe.
